. pdr and arts -- like a lot of districts in the city. most pdr uses are permitted as a right except in the rad except with the exceptions of some of the uses that are allowed in pdr1 and pdr2. arts activities and allowed in many districts? the city and. >> >> and in western soma protecting the arts is a big deal and generally committed throughout the planned area especially within the sally district. again this goes to the split height, the way that you chief the additional height in sally is dedicate one story in the building to permanent arts activity use and whichever story you dedicate is 15 feet high so you get the extra 15 feet that way. night time entertainment -- currently not permitted in the district but as a conditional use in the sso and a small amount of the planned area. under the new zoning it would become principally permitted within the sally and the wmo districts except in the 200-foot buffers in the enclave districts and that opens up land that is not available for new night time entertainment to open up, but it prohibits north of harrison street and it's the
. >> yes. is there any correlation between what we're calling p-d-r on page 16 and manufacturing which is back on page 40? >> good question. >> because it seems like -- i have to just finish my observation. >> sure. >> because on p-d-r we're down over the 2002-11 years by 26%. it went up slightly in the middle years there, in 2006 and '07. if you go back to page 40 and look at the manufacturing totals, it's pretty surprising that in 2011 we have more information jobs than we did back in 2002. so, you don't have to answer that question now. but if, you know, i don't know if p-d-rs totally -- if manufacturing is a broader category or if it encompasses p-d-r or what the -- >> well, what might be useful now, i look at that number and see if it's a mistake or not because that does look a little odd. the difference between p-d-r and manufacturing and manufacturing is an industrial sector, economic sector. and, i'm sorry, manufacturing is an industrial economic sector. and p-d-r is actually one of our land use categories that we've created ourselves to relate employment to land use policy dec
though it doesn't have the name of pdr district is essentially a pdr housing and doesn't allow housing or office but allows other things, and this gives you look at 2a option. so 2b is essentially the same thing except jumping folsom street to capture the two corner lots. one reason is because one of the existing -- it's vacant but existing night time intraim entertainment location is on the north corner there and see the club and there is another varant taking it across folsom street and 2c is basically doing the same thing, rezoning the corridor to sally, but also taking the two alleys on either side of the corridor and taking the existing residential lots and soft sites within the alleys and making them new enclave districts for residential development exercise what that essentially does, and you can't see it too well in the screen here but in the printow i believe you can. it does rezone sally so essentially new night time entertainment is permitted, but the buffers that we spoke about before would apply to these rad districts and the buffers would extend over that corridor excep
pdr and i would have to look at that closer to make sure it makes sense to restrict things for those areas that are fairly large. many many of the uses are already industrial uses and viable. that is one i would have to look at a little bit closer, and the other thing somebody brought up about the differences in restricting the zoning administrator as not the case for the rest of the city. i'm not sure why we're making this more restrictive on the powers of the zoning administrative and mentioned about restrictions on deck and these are some of the details we have to look at as we work our way through the plan and there is a lot of detail and this is the first day we are getting into the nuts and boltds but those are my general feelings on the overview. >> commissioner wu. >> thank you. overall i am supportive of the plan as is. i think there should be some sort of compromise on 11. my opinion is office is probably better suited to be compatible with night time entertainment rather than housing so i believe 3b points us in that direction but curious if other commissioners have t
residential uses north of that and leave that more for the pdr uses, commercial uses, nighttime entertainment, that type of thing. all the residential enclaves in that part of the area. it's hard to see on this map, but many of the alley ways will run through and stop. arterial streets interrupt them. we wanted to create connectionses between those biggar tierial streets. these little alley way neighborhoods begin to connect to one another so you don't have to walk several hundred feet to a major intersection and then back in order to go from one of these alley ways to another. you see quite a number on folsom street, streets like rausch and so on that we wanted to connect across the freeway bridge. so, here's our plan. as i said, the devil is in the details in terms of implementation. implementing this is going to require cooperation of a lot of city agencies, mta, planning department, transportation and so on. we've had great cooperation with transportation authority as jim mentioned working with chester fong. they extended this kind of idea of reclaiming alley ways that was first pioneered
recollection in the 80's there were few residents there and body shops and pdr and there were people living there but you were there as well and that's why larger clubs and footprints ended up there, so whatever this turns into, it evolves into i think we should set it up so there is a little little flexibility, room for creativity, entrepreneurship. this plan is prescriptive. i'm not sure it allows for that or not but i'm looking forward to learning more and hearing more. commissioner borden. >> i think i kind of agree with what commissioner wu said -- 3b, i was looking at that and i do believe every week almost with restaurants that have music that people consider too loud, issues in the corridor and people complaint about restaurant usage and don't necessarily have amplified music and sound and i know there is a challenge of having more lively restaurants sometimes in neighborhood commercial corridors. i personally don't like when too many things are legal non conforping. i think we always see that as a challenge in the code. if there is a preponderance of use in a area and ideally l
number: pdr-885 software version: 3.0c in some places it would be food or shelter or love. going over the sources of passion. they see all the world for the first time the majority of people everywhere want a good job. they want a job that is above the table. that is 30 hours a week. the real key to that is going to be a local and state government. hopefully the mayor in denver and myself in colorado focusing on how do we create the conditions? we can have brilliant vendors but they can sit on a shelf. you can have all the capital without the right idea -- but without the right idea, how does it improve? the magic there is entrepreneurship. when i was a geologist, i could not find a job and after a while we opened -- i stole the idea from berkeley. we werein the first bgrerew pub. that focus of necessity -- we had to do something different. we took it and adapted it. i think that on a much larger scale, we need to find entrepreneurs, people that are willing to put their hearts and souls into that idea, that invention. make sure they have access to capital, and appropriately trained wo
to establish 108,399 gross square feet of legal office use in a pdr-1-g zoning district and 68-x height and bulk district. i have no speaker cards. >> is there any public comment on the items proposed on the consent calendar? seeing none, commissioner antonini? >> move to approve. >> second. >> on that motion to approve, commissioner antonini? >> aye. >> commissioner moore? >> aye. >> commissioner sugaya? >> aye. commissioner wu? >> aye. >> and commissionedthv fong? >> aye. >> so moved, commissioners, that motion passes unanimously. which places you under your commissioners questions and matters. item 3, consideration of adoption, draft minutes of special meeting of october 11, 2012 and draft minutes of regular meeting of october 18, 2012. >> any public comment on the draft minutes? seeing none, commissioner sugaya? >> yes, on thursday, october 11 under item 1, which is on page 2 under speakers, i believe didn't sue hester testify on this item? 295 as related to the transit center district plans. anyway, her name is not listed. maybe the secretary can check. -- check on that. >> i can c
be increasing the height and having pdr's downstairs. in other words industry serving facilities and still get reasonable housing in those areas. >> all right. ms. gavin. thank you. >> well, unlike some of the fellow candidates here i am suing to stop the agreement. the case is in federal court. i don't think park merced needs to be destroyed but this is an important issue in terms of housing and affordable housing. i don't think density is -- i think we have to be very careful about that. i think san francisco is unique in the way -- and we don't look like some cities and we have areas that have problems, but we have a beautiful city, and it's the open space that makes the city very, very beautiful, and we also are federally recognized for sanctuary of rare birds that migrate along the coast. there are about 500,000 and when thinking about growth we need to think about the animals and the environment and the ecology as well. >> all right. mr. lagos. >> yes. one of the reasons i moved to san francisco 35 years ago was because there was not a large population here. i moved from los angele
requirements for building permits issued in areas pdr zoned 1b. this zoning category was specifically designed during the eastern neighborhood process to designate buffer -- specific design during the process to designate buffer zones and heavy industrial uses and adjacent uses in the bay view. recognizing there is unique relationship in the areas and residential neighborhoods are directly across the street. unfortunately with the demolition of one portion of the property this weekend myself and my constituents discovered there is no public notifications in these zoning categories to alert folks to major demolition or construction work that is taking place immediately adjacent to them. i look forward to working with the planning department as well as the city attorney's office and the neighborhood to create this to address the buffer zones so they have the opportunity of opportunities taking place. the second item that i have today is in cosponsorship with mayor lee. it's a proposed term sheet and feasibility analysis of the first phase of pier 70 and along with several other sites were hubs
of pdr in bay view as well as other examples. >> i think the notice is just important because we get people at the last minute that who didn't realize this was going on because they didn't get a legal notice and people don't see things until they're in front of their faces anyway, and i guess the other question about the notification. okay. now you're going to have legal non conforming uses and some knew that but they were allowed to exist. is there like the eastern neighborhoods some amnecessity or process by which you are doing letters of determination? what is the process if you're existing legal non conforping office use and now we're going to be zoning you in the sallies and making you permanently non conforming what do -- say they want add more office space what do they do? >> sure. anybody already a legal non conforming use and remain that way things basically stay the same. they can't expand today or tomorrow and maybe a little with a conditional use but can't add new use and it's funny you mentionedda that r the amesty program and it was extended and tuesday was the la
of potentially incompatible uses all together. you will have housing. you will have office. you will have pdr, and you will have night time entertainment, and when they get to discussing how they're going to make all of that work i hope you will remember the discussion that we're having today. okay. everybody loves fun. you can't be against fun, and night time entertainment is an integral part of the fabric of south of market, so let me make it very clear from the very start there was never any notion of restricting -- putting on any additional restrictions on night time entertainment. our goal from the very beginning was to ensure we would find a better way to make it work together and everybody is full a lot of good ideas to improve what we have. nobody wants to poor cold water on them but unfortunately the good ideas tend to involve somebody else's neighborhood. now we're talking about our neighborhood here. nobody understands the impacts of entertainment like the residents of south market. we have the greatest concentration of place of entertainment permits in the entire city, so no

of projects being held up simply because of the p-d-r issue. so, you actually had like this tangible pipeline of projects that were kind of waiting around where we didn't necessarily have that issue here. >> right. >> in western soma. we can definitely do an analysis -- [multiple voices] >> figure out what other projects may be pipeline worthy, so to speak. the other issue about the legitimatization, just to be clear for the commission and people here today, * you know, again, the legitimatization were for people who had went -- gone in but not gotten their permit. >> right. that is probably true still -- >> there are plenty people, i'm sure there are plenty of those uses 234 western soma. i think most of the people we've heard from are people who have legal nonconforming uses * that currently are in areas that don't permit office because right now under the current zoning you can't really have office anywhere. or you have people who want to do new office, which obviously that is a very sensitive issue in western soma because very high demand for office space. but it's not the kind of space
